Mafuta ya ndege na mafuta ya taa tofauti ni gani? Octane rating ama nini?
Different additives.
There are three types of Kerosene in Kenya.
Dual Purpose Kerosene which has zero additives.
Parrafin which has only anti rust added to it.
Jet fuel is Kerosene with metal deactivates, antifreeze, detergent etc
Kapish??
